It might be worth the time to save potentially hundreds of dollars in taxes!
Yes, I am not feeling great about the large increase in value, and in turn, increase in property tax this year. However, I also think of how lucky we are to live in one of the best cities in the world (not just country). I also think of how lucky we are to have the equity in our homes increasing and not decreasing. I also think of how lucky we are to have some of the lowest taxes in the county. Yes that’s right people of Calgary….we actually pay some of the lowest taxes in all of Canada for our property values. Perspective: We might not like to open our wallets wider this June, but let’s be grateful.
